About this product
- DescriptionWhile this study essentially draws upon Indian conditions and data for analysing ageing and a few of its more critical dimensions involving socio-ecomic, health and public policy aspects, it may well be argued that each of these dimensions remains equally, if t more, important for many of the developing countries with transitioning demography (declining fertility and life prolongation) and liberalising ecomy (growing privatisation and pro-market reforms) rendering several n-market institutions void. From a thorough empirical review of the Indian situation using both the primary and secondary data sources, it has been observed that a bulk of the aged may t be able to withstand the unfolding ecomic realities either in India or elsewhere: they are socially at a loss because of their poor past, ecomically weak because of serious poverty issues, physically frail and suffer from functional dependence. They are also losing because of erosion in traditional familial values. Further, the n-elderly adults are yet to realise the need for planned ageing. The study tries to build the argument that many of these issues have t been fully understood while framing public responses to ageing. The upcoming concepts underlying 'elderly involvements in development' or 'healthy and active ageing' may t therefore hold true for many. The worst affected are the elderly women.
